Default Linux Mint 18.3 | DisplayLink USB Graphics Software for Ubuntu 4.1

Sharing the configuration that works on my computer:
Alienware Alpha i7-4765T + Tek Republic TUD-3000 Dual Display Docking Station


Installation of DisplayLink USB Graphics Software for Ubuntu 4.1.zip (Oops! 4.2 is released!) has no issue:

# Setup Displaylink
# HDMI-0 is Alpha onboard HDMI, the monitor is installed vertically
# DVI-I-1-1 is the monitor connected to the DisplayLink docking

cat /etc/xdg/autostart/displaylink.desktop
